Correct Me if I'm Wrong...

It's bedtime and Lauren's room is, of course, dark.  Remembering her preference, I switch on a nightlight...
Lauren: But my Lambie doesn't like the darkmess, mama, remember?
Mama: I know, honey -- don't worry, I fixed the darkness.
Lauren: DarkMESS, mama.


Mia pulls a new book from a kid's meal bag full of warm take-out food...
Mama: Wow, Mia!  That book looks really cool!
Mia: This is a HOT book, to be exact.


Justin is wrestling with the girls; Lauren is perched on his back, looking down into his ear when I hear him yell in disgust...
Mama:  Lauren, we don't put our boogers into other people's ears, okay?
Lauren:  No no no no...I just dropped it in there.


I'm calling Justin on my cell phone after leaving my OB checkup....
Me:  I'm so excited!  I only gained two pounds since last time!  I was sure it would be worse!
Him:  Nuh-uh -- that can't be right...those scales must need to be recalibrated.


(I personally think he deserved MORE boogers in his ear after that last comment.)

  3. Yes, I think he needs more boogers in his ear too! Good thing that conversation was over the phone and not in person-he might have gotten hurt ;)

  4. Yes, some more boogers are definitely in order:)

  5. Surely, being a loving and smart man who lives in a house filled with ladies, he meant that you couldn't possibly have gained a whole two pounds! Surely!

    I love darkmess. A lot.

Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
